Learning Objectives

Objectives:

  • Surgical site infection (SSI) is one of the health care associated infections (HCAIs); the incidence of SSI does not appear to be falling despite many international and commercially led interventions. SSI may soon become the most common HCAI with significant impact on healthcare resources.
  • Validated and precise definitions are needed to ensure the accuracy of the incidence of SSI. Definitions must be accompanied by equally precise methods of surveillance, particularly post-discharge from secondary care, using monitoring and enforcement of agreed care bundles.
  • Care bundles which use the best evidence, ideally level 1A evidence from systematic reviews and meta-analyses, can reduce SSI incidence; most of these interventions start in the operating room.
